Big advantages Shawbrook have over many other commercial lenders is their desire to lend with far less onerous stress testing compared to high street banks, Interest Only for commercial and BTL property and lending directly to Limited companies.

When it comes to commercial property loans what is the typical turnaround time for shawbrook?

What fantastic news from Shawbrook who are a very active lender in the market place with a huge appetite to lend. Their systems are great and the staffing levels have just increased to cope with demand, which in itself says a lot about Shawbrook as other lenders seem to be cutting back.

It is difficult to provide an exact turnaround time for Shawbrook as outside influences, such as access to property for valuation can create unnecessary delay.

Shawbrook with a perfectly packaged application and no outside issues would be disappointed not to have issued formal loan papers within 14 days and then it is down to the relevant other parties to complete the transaction
